I have a 87 300e and it ildes fine when you first start and it's cold, but when its hot and you stop and leave for ten or twenty minutes and try to start it again it starts kind of hard and seems to miss for a few seconds some times it dies. I have replaced cap rotor spark wires spark plugs fuel filter and over charge relay.

Hi Dave
I have seen fuel pump check valve failed to
holding fuel pressure cause engine hard to
start when hot.
Just replace it,You can find that in partsshop.
Good luck to you.

I have this hard start problem too on 1989 300E. If this isnt a pro only repair can anyone describe how to change fuel check valve described above?

Thanks for replies.

The only other thing I have seen is the fuel injectors leaking down and the EHA leaking down. The EHA will visibly leak fuel if bad.

If it is the fuel injector leaking, you should see black smoke out of the tail pipe with gasoline smell after the car is finally started.
